Sassy is a long-legged girl who always has something to say. She wants to be a ballerina more than anything, but she worries that her too-large feet, too-long legs, and even her big mouth will keep her from her dream.
When a famous director comes to visit her class, Sassy does her best to get his attention with high jumps and a bright leotard. Her first attempts are definitely not appreciated, but with her heart set on dancing and her head above the rest, Sassy might be able to win him over.
